  1. Snip & Sketch - Auto Save to Specified Location


    With the new "Snip & Sketch" tool, I can't find the option to set where snips are saved. If I take a snip, it simply copies it to the clipboard instead of saving it as an image.


    * I do NOT want them copied to the clipboard. I have turned "Auto copy to clipboard" OFF but it still shows the "Snip saved to clipboard" window. This is a bug.

    * When I take a snip, it does not save the snip to a file, so if I take multiple snips without manually saving each one, they're lost and only the latest one can be edited. I need to take multiple snips and have them saved to separate files automatically.


    Where are these options?

    :)

  2. Snip and sketch does not save snips or sketches.

    What about Win+w (Ink Workspace); is it still there? You might get a different symptom from trying to save a "Screen Sketch" made that way. Oh. Apparently "Snip and sketch" is just a new name for that? If so, you don't need to save anything, just
    use the Resume button.

    That would be new too. No sign that Ink Workspace is installable in 1803.

    FYI

  3. Snip and Sketch Awkward

    Use Windows+shift+s to launch Snip and Sketch. Can snip a screenshot.

    Now the problem is this: after snipping the screen shot, it does not automatically appear in the Snip and Sketch app. So I open Snip and Sketch and there's nothing on it.

    So I have choose 'new' and snip the screen yet again.

    I recall using this once and taking a screenshot and voila! Snip and Sketch appeared with the screen shot duly in the app's workspace, ready for annotations and saving etc. This facility has disappeared. I have re-set it according to instructions, and even
    reinstalled it - yet the problem persists.

    Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

    Snip & Sketch - Auto Save to Specified Location

    Snip & Sketch

    It's the Snipping Tool that's being phased out, not Snip & Sketch. FWIW, I just used the latter tool and was able to paste the snip into a Word (Office 365) document. There was a point in the past when for reasons unknown, opening Word would clear the
    clipboard. If you're using an older version, you might want to try opening the document first, before taking a screenshot.

    If you prefer to use Snipping Tool, all you have to do (as I suggested earlier) is open the Start Menu and type snip.
